Introduction to Geometry Designer For iPad
Launching the App To turn on the iPad, press the Home button Find the Geometry Designer app and tap on it. Tap “New Document” to start a new canvas.
Drawing a Line A line is defined by two points. Tap the. Select line. Tap the canvas (to dismiss the popover). Then tap on the canvas to draw your points. A line appears when you are done.
Editing the Line Drag one of the points with your finger and move the line. Double tap on the line. Tap“Color.” Use the sliders to change the line’s color. Tap “Done” and then tap the canvas.
Next Goal Let’s add a line segment so that we make a nice angle.
Line Segments Tap the. Select line. Tap the canvas. Tap on one point from your original line. Create your second point somewhere off the line. You should have a line and a line segment connected at a single point.
Measure an Angle An angle is defined by three points. The first endpoint, a vertex, and the second endpoint. Tap the. Select angle. Tap the canvas. Tap on the three points on the screen. MAKE SURE that the second point you select is the point that the line and segment have in common.
Measure a Length Tap the. Select length. Tap the canvas. Tap on the line segment. Move one endpoint of the line segment. Notice how both measurements change.
Construct a Midpoint Tap the. Select midpoint. Tap the canvas. Tap on the line segment. Drag one of the endpoints of the line segment around. Notice how the midpoint moves too.
Your design should look Similar to this. (Note: The measurement Values may differ) Result
Exploration Explore on your own. Try to figure out what and do. Can you draw a right triangle? What about an equilateral triangle?
